It was a pain to take the M7626 apart, I did think about replacing but
decided I don't mind entering in the date whenever I boot up the system vs.
worrying about the future.
Overall I remove all batteries unless they're required. For example I
removed all Amiga 2000 batteries, but keep up-to-date with things like IBM
5170 AT's and Compaq's 386-Pentium class systems because they need
batteries to hold their configuration, (what a pain).
